    What it does the rack inspection comprise of exactly? What is a rack? Is it a closet? I'm just trying to get an idea of what I need to expect to do before going to boot camp in a couple days. Thanks in advance.

    A rack is your bunk. You'll be shown how to make it up, and woe be to you if it's not made that way every day

    No one shows you how to make it, you will refer to your recruit rules and regulations booklet.

    A senior class will show you how to make it one time after that you are on your own. If they were anything like the guys that showed me mine, you will probably not be shown the correct way and will have to rely on a picture.

    Your company was shown how to make the inside of your rack?

    Lucky you, our company commanders said any questions about your rack refer to your rules and regulations booklet.

    Our company was shown by a senior class. They explained it in 5 minutes. We were grateful, but honestly it didn't gel at all. I referred to the book and looked at the pictures. If you guys work as a team, it'll be much better for you. Some ironed really good, others knew their stuff about racks, and some were experts boot shiners. Just help each other out and you'll be fine.

    Chewy bars are a great currency for polishing boots

    Are you admitting that you've hoarded chewy bars? Not good sailor, not good.

    make sure you don't have a Cheetos wrapper wallet.... in your rack. ("How did a bag of Cheetos make it into your RACK!!!!!" reply: "Petty Officer _____. Seaman Recruit _____That is my wallet" That was one of the funniest moments in my cape may vacation ... A minute later I was almost called out for "giggling like a school boy" memories.... love em.

    On a serious note we had the senior company come in and show us also.

    The Ruler is your Friend.

    Also, if you get your rack clean at first, then keep it that way, you will be fine. I was able to fold all my laundry in about 13 minutes (sock rolls suck as they take time) total if I focused and didn't make a head call)
